Hi @Fox your post here https://forums.socialpointgames.com/topic/7539/balancing-changes-june-2018 said you would like to hear our feedback about this.
In my opinion this is a positive change, blind immunity has been one of the weakest traits, so this at least will give some weight to blind immune monsters vs the new total blind that is pretty much all the hype now in denial as it is un-resisted.
However, I would like to also plea to improve other older traits that are pretty much useless nowdays. We now have traits like nemesis and anticipation and abomination and hardened+possess immune, yet some monsters have traits that are pretty much non existent.
These traits are:
Energized: gives 20% extra stamina, this is pretty much useless right now. the extra little points of stamina do nothing useful especially with moves requiring cooldown, this opens the monster to all sorts of denial and torture effects.
Can we please improve this? An idea that is in line with the trait is to make energized monsters immune to stamina drain and leaks or at least resist some of it if not totally immune. There is no counter whatsoever to stamina drains and leaks currently except monsters with 0 stamina use. This change would make energized monsters pretty useful. Monsters like Gretchen, Greedy Dragon, Frostbite.. would get some use then.
Attuned: another pretty much useless trait in practice. the amount of stamina given back is too little to make a difference. Can this be consolidated with super attuned? at least then it would be a bit useful.
Daze immunity: daze is already a very weak status effect, that reduces accuracy and damage 25%, blind being the better status effect and now we have total blind, yet we have a trait that is solely against daze. Been playing this game for years, can't remember a single time this was useful in combat. Maybe this can be expanded to also include immunity against any damage\power reduction whether from poison and bleeding or from total damage reduction moves. Won't make it that useful either but at least better than nothing.
hope this is read.
